Synopsis (from http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Koibumi)

Koibumi is a very well-acted series that stars Watabe Atsuro, Mizuno Miki, and Wakui Emi. The story is based on the 1984 Naoki Award-winning short story "Koibumi" by Mikihiko Renjo that addressed the subtleties of male and female relationships. It was made into a film the following year. The story was adapted for the screen by renowned scriptwriter Okada Yoshikazu.

Shouichi (Watabe Atsuro) is an art teacher with a very eccentric style. He basically has the personality of a young boy who does things that he feels are right, and doesn't really think too much about the consequences of his actions. Shoichi's wife, Kyouko (Mizuno Miki), is a no-nonsense mother figure that always has to clean up after Shoichi's mistakes. Their two personalities strike a balance and they enjoy a happy life together with their son, Suguru, who has grown up to be more responsible to make up for his father's childishness.

One day, his former lover Etsuko (Wakui Emi) shows up at his school, and tells him that she is dying from a terminal illness and has only six months to live. Shouichi decides to be with her until her death, so he quits his job, leaves his family, and finds a new job so he can spend more time with Etsuko at the hospital. Kyouko wakes up to find her husband gone with no explanation, and goes out in search of him...

Edit June 16: There are places in this drama that are left untranslated. Mostly background dialog and things that aren't of much meaning to the whole plot. I can't translate them and since NGN didn't do that either these lines are left untranslated.
It's only a few lines here and there so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

I'm uploading fairly quickly because I have worked on the editing and timing of most episodes during the last month.
I know how frustrating it is to wait when you want to watch something.
I'll upload the subtitles for episode 6 today.
I'll be away for about a week over midsummer.
I won't have opportunity to watch the episodes while I'm away.
The rest of the subtitles will be uploaded sometime between June 24 and 28.

Okay.
So it would seem the old index
http://www.d-addicts.com/forums/threadindex/
shows this thread but not the new index.
I didn't know there was an old subtitles index available.
I see now that the list that updates is found at the bottom of the new index page.
Thanks.

Sugoi!

I just noticed these were available! Thank you for your hard work. I know what a monumental task it is to time/create sub files (even when you're transcribing from an already translated series). It is very much appreciated.

This series is in my top 10 list of all-time favorite jdramas. It was mesmerizing back in 2004 when I watched it in 4x3 SD. So happy that I'll be able to (re)watch this in HD this time. Thanks again.

Otsukaresama! :cheers:
